“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”

Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution

The setting was a beautiful autumn day...
clear skies, warm temperatures, light breeze blowing through 
changing leaves... perfect!!


We spent our day with grandson, Easton.
His sister was in school and his baby brother...not yet born!
At the age that Easton is at, he is still not quite sure
of all the animals at the farm.


He loves to help with chores, as long as the animals are on the other side of the fence.


We visited the pigs in the pasture,


and he stayed behind me... just in case.
With time he will become more and more comfortable.


What he did want to do, however, was to ride every single
farm, utility, and sport vehicle that we have here on the farm.


So that is what we did (slowly and very safely).

We drove the go-karts around the mowed track that lies
on the periphery of the Field of Dreams.


Muppy took him for a tractor ride...


multiple gator rides....


a couple ATV rides (emphasizing SLOWLY!)


And of course, he spent a fair amount of time driving his own
mini gator.


During the short amount of time that we spent indoors,
he played with...
you guessed it... vehicles!

This kid loves things that "go".
Needless to say, we did a lot of "go-ing" yesterday!

We will have Easton and his sister sometime this...
